This presentation is given as a ppt file so that anyone can amend it for their particular needs. It is always been a constant need for individuals to present about this topic to an audience where the speaker can elaborate on certain aspects of the project as well as challenges it faces. The reason why I (Red1) put this out is to assist you in a quick easy template that you can reuse and extend. You may save a new version elsewhere and provide the link here. You should not replace the original here as it can serve as a basic template. If you think yours is better than we can discuss and later add yours as a different version.

This particular slideshow is titled Tao of Open Source and it has slides that are adapted from Compiere. I will be redoing those ERP In Essence slides so that we need not be infringing copyright issues. Meanwhile be forewarned as you have to seek permission before using those slides.
